We got to have more than two friendly and family oriented small towns in the state. Many families that area relocating to our state can benefit from your advice.

The problem is, there is a catch 22. The kinds of towns you are asking about don't reflect what Florida is. You can go to Chipley or almost any of the small towns along the I-10 corridor and find very low crime and nice clean towns, the same kinds of towns you find in most any state. The Florida people think of when they think of Florida, is South Florida and it comes with problems. You can't have your cake and eat it too. The pan handle for example might just as well not be another state, it is a world away from South Florida. That's why you live there I bet.

Try Lake Placid, it has about 1700 residents. Small and quiet, not a lot going on there. Good place to a family.

That is one of the reasons that I love this area.

Try the Lake Panasoffkee area. It has a very large lake that the federal gov. is putting millions into to revitalize and allmost no non-white citizens. The community is small town with excellent schools that are not overcrowded and the realistate market is still hot with some very good deals to be had. It is a easy commuite to Ocala, Orlando, Tampa and cheap to live there. A house that would sell for 600 to 700 thousand in Orlando would sell for 300 to 400 in Lake Panasoffkee for the exact same house on the lake. No crime to speak of.

Come on, don't start that kind of questioning. Please.

People like to know the demographics of an area, that's all the person was doing was saying that it's mostly white. If you want to debate the reasons and whys of non-white citizens just go to the general U.S. message board, there are a lot of debates about that issue. But I can't understand why everytime someone mentions the demographics of an area it becomes a debate.

People want info about areas. Period. And that includes knowing what type of people do or don't live there.

Sorry. If you tout an area and say one of the assets is that there are non-white citizens you open yourself to that kind of question.
